The Lakota are calling for prayers next Friday for Sandy Hook and the world:

As we are approaching the end of 2012 and looking forward to the New Year, we are also remembering the recent tragic event which took place in Connecticut. There have been other tragedies which happened in America and throughout the world which got us to thinking about how we have to come together if we are to survive as people. As we are in the middle of the Holiday Season, a season that is for families and especially for children, we are requesting a day of unified prayer to support those families who are in grief due to the loss of their young ones. Pray for all of the community members and those who work at the Sandy Hook School. Pray for the student body as they will be affected for a lifetime. This day of prayer will occur on Friday. December 28th, 2012 at 5 pm, mountain time.

You can include prayers for all those who are remembering loved ones here on the reservation and elsewhere. Also for anyone and anything else you can think of.
this is for all families who have lost children to violence.

For those of us who have chanunpahs (pipes) he especially asks that you join him at that time (7 PM EST).

If you do not have a chanunpah, and cannot join up with someone who has one, please send your voice as best you can.

For those for whom the timing is difficult (my European, New Zealander, and Australian brothers) he asks that you add your prayers either upon rising on that day, or before going to bed.

Many blessings, and thank you Grandfathers and Grandmothers for the thoughts and prayers of so many good people.
